Talk about your heirloom recipes! My grandmother made this for my mother when she was a child, and she made it for us to enjoy. Paprika and caraway add wonderful flavor and sour cream gives it a creamy richness. It’s simply scrumptious! —Marcia Doyle, Pompano Beach, Florida

"Good recipe. I halved the recipe and eliminated the olive oil..I am always trying to cut down on calories. this dish was very tasty without the oil."

"I used authentic hot hungarian paprika, doubled the beef broth and added potatoes. Less is more the the hot paprika. had to add 2 cups of sour cream to cool it down."

"I loved this. I ended up using a different kind of butcher cut. Not stew meat but maybe pot roast. It was wonderful."

MY REVIEW

"I was trying to re-create my mother's recipe which got from a Hungarian chef who came to the US to work for the Trumps ( back when Ivana was married to Donald). One think I remembered is that the recipe uses a good part of a whole can ( like at least 3/4) of sweet Hungarian Paprika. Try that to spice it up-- you won't be disappointed. I used roasted red peppers instead of raw green ones and added more beef broth and a little balsamic vinegar. It's almost finished cooking as I write-- just waiting on the beef to get really tender ( I'm cooking on stove top in Dutch oven). But the flavor is fantastic. ( think I used at least 6 Tbsp of paprika). I suggest using 4 T to start and then keep adding to taste as it cooks."
